A presentation of Innovation in the Italian Counter-Reformation, edited by Shannon McHugh and Anna Wainwright (University of Delaware Press, 2020), and roundtable discussion on new directions in the field of Counter-Reformation studies.
Innovation in the Italian Counter-Reformation presents a radical reconsideration of creative production in post-Tridentine Italy, challenging the enduring “black legend” of the Italian Counter-Reformation. The volume’s contributors weave literary analysis together with religion, theatre, art, music, science, and gender to demonstrate that the literature of this period not only merits study but is positively innovative. This roundtable brings together the volume editors, contributors and discussants.
